This episode features a patient’s perspective on healthcare from Esther Hamblin. She joined the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast with Rob Oliver as part of the Guinness World Record Setting patient interview marathon. Esther is from Virginia and, as you will hear, is a stay-at-home mom who is concerned about her children’s health. This is interview 48 in the marathon.
Here are 3 things that stood out as Esther Hamblin gave us a patient’s perspective on healthcare:
- A Healthcare Hero, like Dr. Shane, is somebody who takes a personal interest in their patients and goes above and beyond in caring for them.
- Quality healthcare is not just about caring for the individual but realizing that it has an impact on their entire family.
- Listening to your patients is imperative. In Esther situation, a provider dismissing her symptoms led to significant postpartum complications. Medical professionals need to listen to their patients and take their concerns seriously!
